“nice resort”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

a pretty nice located resort. We visted after we finished our skyline trail and stayed there for a night in Aug 2012. Good choice if you travel with a group of people. Nice backyard. Room is big and clean.

Decent view in the breakfast area...a nice stay......

The lady in the informaiton center of Cape breton helped us booked this hotel and arranged the free breakfast.

Beyond the control of the Silver Dart staff was the perfect Cape Breton fall color, but they were able to complement the season with outstanding service. The front desk staff, the servers, the chef, the housekeeping staff - all encounters were a pleasure. I have experienced pieces of a hotel's resources at a high rate of service, but rarely do I come across such a comprehensive high standard of delivery from all involved. The crew at the Silver Dart understands their business. Well done.

Room Tip: Mac Neil House is the jewel on the hill with the finest view of the Bras d"or Lakes.

I stayed at the Silver Dart for a week. The facility was just fine, the scenery and location were great, but the best thing about my stay there was the friendly, helpful staff. Every person with whom I had contact went out of their way to make me feel welcomed. I will certainly recommend the Silver Dart to friends, and stay there on my next trip to Baddeck!

We stayed in a section of the lodge that was in keeping with a typical older style 2 story motel with external doors to each room. The room we were in was clean, very spacious and the king size bed was a welcomed change. The walls were a bit thin, but luckily our neighbours, both beside and above, retired early and woke later than us. The room offered a great view of the lake and parking was close by. An unexpected surprise was the laundry facilities and the restaurant. We arrived late so the restaurant dining room spared us from having to drive around town to find a good spot. Dinners were very good and the included breakfast buffet provided a good selection. We were offered a discounted room rate which was an added bonus. The staff were friendly and helpful and because of their timely advice we were able to reserve tickets for one of the last Ceilidths of the year, an event not to be missed.

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor room.

Great views and more space than normal. Very good breakfast and friendly staff. A good choice if you're in Baddack. Only complaint is having a flat sheet rather than a fitted sheet on the bed! But we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All rooms have a great view.

We are staying in the Silver Dart for 3 nights. The views from the chalet we are staying in are very beautiful. Beds are comfortable and the room is spacious. Unfortunately the walls are very thin and we could have joined the conversation next door. Thank God for earplugs, I would not have slept otherwise.
Rooms are not cheap in this part of Canada and may be this raises my expectations too much.
Restaurant is good by the local standards and the service was very friendly on both evenings.

Thank you for staying in one of our Chalets during your visit to the Silver Dart Lodge. I do apologize you were disturbed by conversations in the adjoining Chalet. We have many different types of accommodations on site and I do we will be able to find you a quieter room on your next visit to our property.
